    Default New XD-S

    Was at our local gun store this morning picking up a new toy for hubby. Asked the owner what he had that might fit my hand, now that manufactures have finally woken up to the fact that not all shooters have hands like men! Guys, I have to tell you...didn't really think there would ever be another pistol in my life other than my HK;however, the (new?) XD-S .45 ...talk about SWEET!!! And it hides away almost as well as my little derringer. I wanted to bring it home today , but reality hit and the money for the XD is needed to buy ammo for hubby's new AR-15. Really need to win a lottery....

    While you're saving your nickles and dimes, another flat, little dandy you may want to try in your hands is the new Smith and Wesson M&P Shield. Less than 1 inch wide and just 19 ounces.

    Really sad that all of these guns have been recalled. The factory has not yet figured out what to do to the XDS to fix it. I think they can fix them but the cost is going to put them under if they can't figure out something different. Now we know why Glock has never made a smaller gun.

    I read about this. Guess it's a good thing I couldn't afford what I thought I wanted, bummer. In the mean time, still very happy with my HK P2000sk, and of course my little Bond Derringer. They both will do what I need if ever needed.

    The XDS is now being fixed and shipped. That is great news for all the people waiting for news from the factory.
